    Dear Eric

    Assumption_ you have "copied" Standard "EXCEL" output variant to folder "OUTVAR" and renamed it

    If this assumption is correct you need to check customizing. Regarding output variant "EXCEL" some help is provided there. Explanaiotn is given there how to handle the "EXCEL" macro which you need (to be stored in e.g. DMS).

    If assumption is wrong: you need to ask your developer of output variant (which function module to use; which EXCEL macro needed; how to prepare it etc.)

    • Dear Eric

      sorry: It is a very very long time ago since there was the need to upload the EXCEL macro. I have no idea about the error message.

      Normally you get more "hints" from SAP (what does error message "1" means (as part of the text ""Error when uploading file : 1"). One topic might be: there is a "customizing" missing. You need to make sure that you can store "Xls" files in DMS. Without that you can not store the "Xls" file in SAP.

      With out successful upload you can not use the output vaiant "EXCEL". You will always get the error message as mentioned by you. And "yes": the XLS file is uploaded in DMS (if you would succeed) and therefore eror message as mentioned by you should be solved.

    This is a long shot, but we ran into this as well and it was just an authorization issue. Did you run and SU53 or have the user run an SU53 to see if that might be it?
